We welcome people to browse and shop throughout our large two-story bookstore in Eugene’s Market District on 5th and Willamette Street, across from the downtown Post Office.  

We are grateful for those who choose to support independent, locally owned businesses, especially during these challenging times. We know people have many online options for books, and we work hard to remain a relevant community place for all kinds of people who still love books and bookstores.  All your kind words and steady requests for good books have kept our boat afloat, and we are determined to continuing earning your support in the months and years ahead.  

Smith Family Bookstore, one of the oldest independent bookstores in Oregon, has been buying and selling books since 1974. Our business is simple: we have worked hard for decades to create a big, beautiful bookstore filled with good books for people who read and support local businesses. We believe bookstores matter.

Our store is located in one of the oldest buildings remaining in the ever-evolving Market District in Eugene, Oregon. We have six rooms full of books on two levels with hundreds of well organized sections, and because we buy so many books every week, the inventory is always changing and growing. We are committed to thriving as a bookstore for our community. We offer an interesting selection of good books, and we welcome local readers and visitors from everywhere.
